The Pacific (2010)

  Summary  

The Pacific is based primarily on two memoirs of U.S. Marines, 'With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa' by Eugene Sledge and Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie. The miniseries tells the stories of the two authors and Marine John Basilone, as the war against the Empire of Japan rages. It also draws on Sledge's China Marine and Red Blood, Black Sand, the memoir of Chuck Tatum, a Marine who fought alongside Basilone on Iwo Jima.

The miniseries features well-known battles with Japan involving the 1st Marine Division, such as Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa, as well as Basilone's involvement in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

Hugh Ambrose wrote the official tie-in book to the miniseries, which follows the stories of the two of the featured men from the miniseries, Basilone and Sledge, as well as stories of Sledge's close friend Sid Phillips and two men not featured in the series, Marine Corps officer Austin Shofner and Navy pilot Vernon Micheel. The different cast providing a wider view of the Pacific theatre, allowing the book to include the fall of the Philippines, Midway, Philippine Sea and Luzon and expand the narrative to include depictions of life as experienced by prisoners of war, senior officers and the development of naval aviation. It was published in the U.S. and the U.K. in March 2010.
